The Bread & Roses Theatre presents a 5 star production of Clare McIntyre's acclaimed & award-winning play Low Level Panic.

Set in a bathroom, Low Level Panic is a bright, warm, sometimes wet and messy dark-comedy about three young women. Through its fearless comedy Low Level Panic explores female experiences in our world and the objectification, fear and challenges these young women face on a daily basis.

First performed at the Royal Court in 1988, Clare McIntyre went on to win the Samuel Beckett Theatre Award for the play the following year. With the increased influence of pornography through the internet and the still widespread sexist portrayals of women in the media, Low Level Panic often feels even more relevant nowadays than it was when originally written in the 1980s.

The in-house Bread & Roses Theatre Company returns after their first full scale production last year - a new adaptation of Miss Julie which went on to receive 5 star reviews - with another topical and innovative take on a groundbreaking play.

★★★★★ - 'Hart and Pryle carry the play with ease and make it an absolute joy to watch whilst Clyde provides many additional comic moments. Pamela Schermann, who directed, used the space to the best of its advantage and paid a great amount of attention to detail. (...) an absolutely fantastic production, relevant, topical yet also funny and entertaining' - RemoteGoat

★★★★ - 'there's nothing dated about its core message: what is the world's perception of women and how they in turn view themselves? - FemaleArts

'Diverse snapshots of the women’s world from a lovely bathroom to the outer world, presented in great set design. (...) LOW LEVEL PANIC is one of London Pub Theatres ‘top picks’ of the month.' - London Pub Theatres

'Clare McIntyre's 1988 play remains hugely important and relevant, with a well-cast ensemble' - ActDrop

I really enjoyed this. Although I am a older guy I could really engage with the characters which were beautifully acted and staged. It was thoughtful and funny .... and relevant to today....... but also timeless. Visited The Bread & Roses Theatre on 2016-04-22

Great use of small space to get across really important messages about women's lives. Would not have made such an impact in a traditional theatre. Touching, funny and well acted. Visited The Bread & Roses Theatre on 2016-04-16
